Blurring the lines between the indoors and the outdoors, Le Dumont d'Urville gives guests the opportunity to enjoy ocean cruising at its finest onboard this luxury ship. With lounges and restaurants that make the most of panoramic sea views, spacious staterooms where you can wind down in comfort after an activity-packed day, and itineraries which take you to the heart of the world's most beautiful destinations, a cruise with Ponant is a truly unforgettable experience.
For fine French dining wherever in the world you are, look no further than the gourmet restaurants on Le Dumont d'Urville. The main dining venue is Le Nautilus where the contemporary décor and panoramic views make for the perfect setting when it comes to enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner during your cruise. Offering both hot dishes and tempting buffets of salads, cheeses and desserts, you're guaranteed to find something that you'll love. Alternatively, if you want to enjoy your meals outside, you can do just this thanks to the Grill Restaurant, serving up premium cuts of meat grilled to perfection as you marvel at the sweeping views across the ocean.
Once you've enjoyed your exquisite dinner, you can settle in for a night of sophisticated entertainment. Thanks to the onboard theatre and Grand Salon, guests can be treated to dance performances, classical concerts and film projections. Alternatively, for those moments when you simply want to sit back with a drink in the hand, the Blue Eye lounge is an impressive underwater bar where you can spend a relaxing evening socialising with other guests.
During your free time on Le Dumont D'Urville you can take advantage of the modern facilities. For those who find that relaxing is the most important part of a holiday, the pool deck, complete with sun lounges and a bar, is the perfect way to kick off your day, while the spa and hair salon is where to go for pampering sessions.
However, for those who find themselves getting a little restless, there is also an onboard gym with state-of-the-art equipment and a water sports marina, meaning that staying active is easy even when you're in the middle of the ocean.
